    Ah! now i understand what you are saying. yeah. we really need more communities get togethers etc. they exist you just got to find them. most fans do get togethers every year anytime of the year. but you would mostly see them doing them Michael birthday,passing day, and Halloween. like right now there's a lot of events for Halloween with Michael name on it.

    but you're right. we need be closer to fans and the estate. i really think they had something like this before but stop doing it. you can ask them to bring it back but you might get the answer you want sadly. :\

    The estate doesn't care about this kind of closeness with the fan community.

    And Korgnax doesn't answer because he's a fan like you and me that the estate doesn't communicate with.

    Given we have only just been offered a this is it 10th anniversary release which is beyond the realms of some peoples budget this is why we should seek some communication avenue with the estate.
    I do not believe for 1 minute that they do not care about the fans but at the end of it all they are a buisness as well.

    Michael Jackson was never "direct communication" though .and that's the whole point.

    It's M & Sonny.

    Wendijane your wrong Michael wanted communication with his fans, he hinted to us through fanclubs etc where he would be , what he was working on etc. The biggest thing was the formation of mjjnews which was a direct channel straight to Michael.

    I think it's a good idea. I asked the Estate on their website about releasing new concerts twice, left my E-mail, but got no reply. I hope at least one person from the Estate would listen to the fans and give us some satisfying answers or messages.

    At this point ... we have tried for the past years & they still don't care to listen, the entire company is just shhit! They don't care about us. From 2010 with the michael album & the fake tracks until now with a price of $500 for something we all already have & to top it off, nothing new in the package & its the saddest & last era! I just hope that I live the day to see releases that we've been begging for for years!

    Mj directly contacted fans on many occasions when he was going on trips to london etc and wanted it made public to the fans so we could see him etc

    Before 03-05 happened mjj source was created for the exact purpose of direct comunication.

    The estate only cares about making money as thats their job. In the scheme of things we,the hardcores etc arent that important to them as we are a very small % of people who buy things.the gen public/casual fan is where the money is and the estate has made plenty because of them so probably see no reason to change things or to be that intrested in what the hardcores want or think

    The estate doesn't listen to the fans, so there's no point in contacting them

    I don't blame them, most of the time. The sense of entitlement of some MJ fans is ridiculous and it seems as though they are never happy.

    The sole task of the Executors is to generate income, settle claims and debts and take care of the heirs, whilst seeing the Estate out of probate.

    They don't have to bend to the whims of fans....especially as it's almost impossible to find any one thing that all fans can agree on. Having said that, I think there have been efforts on many occasions to take the opinions and ideas of fans on board....this is why the Executors hold meet and greets and Q & A sessions for fans at fan events, such as the MJ One birthday week celebrations in Las Vegas every year. The production and packaging of the Xscape album, for example, was done in a way that came about as a direct result of listening to fans and giving them what they wanted (e.g. providing the demos as well as the reimagined/finished tracks). The same can be said for the BAD 25 project (unreleased songs, the Wembley concert, studio footage, etc).

    Agreed. I’m all for direct communication, but the entitlement culture has gotten out of hand. That’s not just a problem with MJ’s community, you can see it everywhere. Whenever some company posts something (and it can be anything, really) on social media, there will be swarms of trolls demanding more, or something entirely unrelated to what the post was about. Facebook in particular has become unbearable for me.

    That said, for me, as a new fan, two things feel odd.

    1. I can’t go out and buy the ultimate, best sounding edition of all of MJ’s albums. From what I read in the audiophile threads here, I’d have to track down some obscure Dutch MOV release of Invincible, and the original US vinyl releases or Japanese CDs of his early albums, to make sure I get to experience the best sound possible.

    2. While many people nowadays own huge HD TV screens, MJ’s short films are not available in the best possible quality. I bet Michael would be really upset if he knew this.

    When we’re talking about MJ’s legacy, I’d expect the things he released during his lifetime to be easily available everywhere, in the best possible quality, because that’s what MJ himself certainly would have wanted.

    And then we can talk about musicals and all the other undeniably good stuff.

    I would so much have loved to show Ghosts to my friends on Halloween. But no introduction to MJ’s short films should have to begin with “I’m sorry about the shoddy quality.”
